Here we are camped in the desert of Southern Arizona.  Only 10-15 miles from the California border.  A desolate spot of sand and rock a few miles from the town of Quartzite.  Most of the crowd from a few weeks ago has departed the area, leaving only tire tracks and abandoned fire pits as witness to their being here.

The view from our window.

There are already thirty or so Casita’s, Scamps, and assorted other fiberglass rv’s scattered around us.
